NBA Betting: Houston Rockets vs. Minnesota Timberwolves

NBA betting includes a Western Conference mismatch, so it seems, between Houston and Minnesota. The online basketball betting key is board value here.

NBA betting consideration for this one would first go to Houston, which is natural.  Minnesota, after all, is one of the least appealing teams in all of online basketball bettingNBA betting handicappers have been impressed with Houston for the most part this season.

Keep in mind the Rockets are in a bit of transition with a new coach, Rick Adelman, and a new star player, Ron Artest.  Yao Ming was injured last spring, you may recall, and when you factor his return to the team with the aforementioned items and you have a new online basketball betting equation for the Rockets.

While the Rockets have been up and down on NBA betting sides recently, they had a strong online basketball betting stretch from November 24 through December 13 in which they went 7-3 over the total.  Overall Houston has a NBA betting record of 15-9 straight up and 12-12 against the NBA betting lines.

The Rockets have been a bit of a better NBA betting value on the road with a mark of 8-6 against the spread.  Houston has been a strong 10-4 over the total in road action this year.  The Rockets were 9-10 against the spread as a NBA betting chalk this season.

NBA betting fans have been justifiably skeptical about Minnesota, even with the recent coaching change that has seen Kevin McHale leave the front office to run the bench.  The change can’t cover up the NBA betting fact that McHale has “built” a bad team that is overmatched time and again.

Minnesota had an overall NBA betting record of a humiliating 4-18 straight up and 8-14 against the NBA betting lines.  The Wolves were just 3-8 against the board at home with 7 of their 11 home games going under the total.  As a NBA betting dog the Wolves were 8-11 against the spread.
